Word of the Day

I like to expand my students’ vocabulary by exposing them to a word of the day.  Sometimes it’s related to a current event or something that’s going on in the students’ lives.  For example, today we have a two hour delay due to the extremely cold wind chill.  So our word of the day is frigid.  Here are some useful resources for words of the day:

Word Central Student Dictionary – uses Merriam-Webster dictionary.  Provides suggestions for correct spelling if student misspells.

Wordsmyth – Provides options for three different levels (Beginner’s, Children’s, and Advance).  Includes pronunciation, animation, synonyms, photgraphs, and etymology.
